The 67th Bilderberg Meeting will take place from May 30 to June 2, 2019 in Montreux, Switzerland, the group has just announced.
It is believed that the announcement was made only days before the meeting to make it as difficult as possible for protesters and independent journalists to make it to the event.
The annual Bilderberg Meeting is a three-day forum for informal discussions, between global insiders. Every year, approx. 130 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, labour, academia and the media comprise the group. About two-thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America.
The first Meeting took place at the Hotel De Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, The Netherlands, from May 29 to 31 1954. Thus, the name.
The Meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor of any other participant may be revealed.
According to the group, this is this year's agenda:
1. A Stable Strategic Order
